What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. run hledger web with my full year's ledger
  2. visit the register screen

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Register screen within a few seconds. Instead: after some seconds, a blank page and on the console
"HTTP request failed with: stack overflow".

The issue seems to be the size of the command's output - about 200K is fine here but
450K is not, unless I increase stack space with +RTS -K16000000. It's probably a
weakness in or a misuse of one of the web frameworks.

It was gsubRegexPR from the regexpr library. I've removed that and pages now serve
without error (and faster). Fixed in darcs.
